As a fibromyalgia sufferer, I deal with a lot of random pain and nausea. After that physical attack, there’s a mental ache and discouragement that falls like a heavy fog over my entire existence.
So I like a tea that attacks both angles: something that’s evidence-based and good for my body, but also comforting for my mind. Like a winter holiday embrace, or a flannel blanket, for my soul.
That’s this masala chai.
Full bodied black tea enhances South Indian masala spices with cinnamon, cardamom notes and lively ginger. Used by sages for ages, the chai blend continues to maintain popularity for its natural, almost Christmas-y sweetness.
It’s also good for that wellness you crave when seeking out ASMR: cinnamon and cardamom have been found to lower cholesterol, while ginger is consistently used to reduce nausea and vomiting in pregnancy. A healthy body often leads to a more relaxed mind, and in our quest for tingles, that’s never a bad thing.

My supplier, 3Teas, sources the best teas from around the world–I can literally trace every tea back to its organic, humane origin! They are on a mission to show people that you don’t need sugar and chemicals to have great taste. Quality and ethical business is reflected in the shipping price, which ranges from $10 to $15 for most of the US and Canada: we use humane shipping options such as the Canada post, instead of rushed warehouses with alleged human rights violations (*cough cough prime*), and we ship from exotic and beautiful international locations. We believe you can taste the difference in quality, and that it’s worth paying for.
We use recyclable/reusable stainless steel tins (made in USA) which keep tea fresh for up to 2 years. You may also choose to use white stand up pouches if you prefer, which are cheaper given the rising price of steel, but less environmentally-conscious. For maximum tingles, check out the ASMR video on YouTube that corresponds to your tea! The tins are lovely for tapping, and the pouches make a great crinkly sound.
